Do I have to let the Medical Board know about my delegates/supervising physicians?
Yes, if you are a physician or a physician assistant.
Physicians are required to register all PAs and APRNs that they supervise prior to the delegates beginning to work for them. If there is a change to the scope of the delegation, physicians must notify the Board within 30 days of this change.
PAs are likewise required to register their supervising physicians with the Board prior to beginning to practice under the employment or prescriptive authority agreement. They are also required to notify the Board within 30 days of any change to the scope of the delegation.
APRNs should look to guidance provided by the Texas Board of Nursing for how to register their delegating physicians, as the Medical Board does not have licensing authority for nurses.

passage of the Special Purpose Examination (SPEX);
remedial education, including but not limited to a mini-residency, fellowship or other structured program;
passage of the Medical Jurisprudence Examination; and/or
